Harold Ramis Revolutionized Comedy

“For children of the 1980s – including some of today’s biggest film stars – he revolutionized US comedy and made some of our favorite films of all time.” That’s what The Guardian says. What I say: 1) His “Groundhog Day” is one of the best comedies in Hollywood history (even Stephen Sondheim thought so: he seriously thought about turning it into a musical); 2) Ramis himself, as many of his friends attest, was a true mensch. Not many of those in Hollywood — or anywhere else.
